Notes / Description: 

B. F. Stoltz, as administrator of Henry Stoltz, entered a mortgage with the defendants on 61 acres of land as part of a mortgage, exempting his homestead from the agreement. The defendants alleged that the mortgage was unpaid. They placed a lien on the property, then filed suit to foreclose. Stoltz did not attend the procedure, and his land and homestead were foreclosed upon and sold. Stoltz sued to invalidate the sale and get his homestead back.
